I am also one half of the collaboration Robinson & McMahon   http://delmonteart.wordpress.com/

Working to a basic starting formula, we are guided by reaction and response, where music plays an important role. The many thinly layered, muted grounds create a sense of place where contrasting quick, bold actions, whether loud and jarring or a just a subtle intervention, bring to life a narrative, however ambiguous. There are diverse elements of harmony and discord, noise and silence – a visual disturbance amongst the stillness to bring about a dissonant harmony.

“Disregarding the traditional idea that an oil painting is created by just the one painter, Helen McMahon and Jason Robinson create intensely atmospheric abstract paintings as a duet. With a formula that deems the process just as important as the outcome, one relies on the autonomous, reactive and interceptive deeds of the other. Painting alone at different hours but on the same canvas, their separation of ideas and paint creates a togetherness in their works, a “harmonious tension” as they call it, which leaves the viewer questioning whether the painting might be a reference to a landscape, a figure, an experience or an emotion.” Beautiful Crime 2012
